We celebrate the start of June with great news the ventilator you helped buy has arrived at Argostoli hospital in Kefalonia.

This will be a great addition to the hospital in Argostoli and now we are aware it could also be a key part of allowing tourism back into Kefalonia this season as it will assist with covid or other care should a case or need happen on the island until the patient transfers to Zakynthos or Rio near Patras for intensive care.

The following message is from Donna who kicked off this great initiative.

Great June 1st…our ventilator and stand have arrived at Argostoli hospital.
A huge thank you to everyone who donated and made this all possible.
I sat and had a very nice chat with Mr Fotis, the hospital director, who is facing so many ongoing daily problems there.
Kefalonia doesn’t have an ICU but this ventilator is essential in keeping patients breathing until they are moved to a larger hospital on the mainland.
It will stay at the hospital, along with the two monitors bought by FLIK.
The old ventilators which were not in working order, were donated to Patra hospital, who also serviced them, as they had Covid patients who needed them.
Hospitals work together, as they should and team work is essential if we want to help again in the future.
Thank you again Donna x​
